Think you have a long commute from your City South–area home? Just imagine running a vineyard in South America. It’s more than 5,000 miles to Argentina and this south Minneapolis family is making it work.
What started as one vineyard and a long-distance investment has grown for Southwest Minneapolis residents Eugenio Meschini and Teresa Thein Meschini. They have transformed a former family farm into a second winery and the two vineyards produce a grape crop that’s primarily sold to other Argentine wineries.
